Frog Legs Anyone?

Ever tried escargot or frog legs? A cruise ship is the perfect place to try new foods! 

When I was recently dining at Blu, one of the specialty restaurants on the Celebrity Equinox for AquaClassSM guests which focuses on healthy cuisine, I didn’t realize that the waiter overheard me as I exclaimed, “Frog legs?!!” I was reading from the dinner menu and was excited to see them as an appetizer since I had never tried them before.  But when I went to order, I lost my courage and didn’t order the frog legs. 

The appetizers were served and then a few moments later, the waiter placed another dish in the middle of the table, it was the frog legs!  I love to try new foods; however, in this case, I needed a little push.  I was so glad I did, now I can say that I’ve tried them AND liked them!

Are you like many people who order the same 1-2 things every time you go to your favorite restaurants?  A great thing that I’ve found going on a cruise is that it widens your eyes to different types of food that you normally wouldn’t try at home.  I love opening up the menu at dinner every night to read the menu and see what’s available in the dining room that night. Go ahead, don’t be afraid, you might just be surprised! You may just realize vegetable caponata tartar is one of your new favorite dishes!

FreshCruiser TIP:  Find out where the main chef and most of the workers are from, it will give you insight into their specialties to pick the best and most authentic dishes.
